happening right now, just an out-of-control wildfire gaining ground in yosemite creeping ever so close to buildings, prompting evacuations and threatening san francisco's power grid and water supply. this morning, a total of about 225 square miles already charred. that vufly, for reference here, roughly the size of the city of chicago. 5500 buildings right now threatened, 23 of them have already burned and 2800 firefighters are on the ground right now working very, very hard. >> we now know one of the areas destroyed by the fire is the tuolumne family camp run by the city of berkeley. that camp is located on highway 120 just seven miles from the entrance to yosemite. "today in the bay's" jodi hernandez joins us from the front lines of the fire this morning. jodi, it is certainly a stubborn wildfire. firefighters making any progress
this morning? >> reporter: well, you know, fire crews are just now waking up or the bulk of them are just now waking up and getting ready to get back on the fire line. bay area crews are out here, crews from sunnyvale, los altos and san francisco. in fact, all these engines you see lined up behind us are from the south bay. this fire again is burning out of control. it may be a long way from the bay area. but it is impacting our region in a very big way. the fire has burned about 144,000 acres so far. among the loss, as you mentioned, the berkeley tuolumne family camped, owned and operated by the city of berkeley since 1992. you're looking at pictures of that camp. it burned yesterday. firefighters tell me they just could not save it as hard as they tried.
also camp towongo headquartered in san francisco has lost one building. the staff sent one person to the camp to retrieve the torah. also a very big concern for the bay area is the hetch hetchy reservoir which complies water and power to the bay area. two hydroelectric plants we understand have been damaged. so far service has not been impacted. again, crews are here from all over the state and all over the bay area. i'll tell you that the folks who live in this area really appreciate it. they're on pins and needles as they wait and pray their homes will be spared. >> we're back here live. you're looking as these fire engines here again, engines from
the south bay. all the fire chiefs are currently at a briefing. briefing starts at 6:00 a.m. where they're all getting their assignments for the day. the san francisco fire chief, we caught him as he was leaving the find out where they're going to be staying for the next 24 hours. a lot of these crews have been protecting the structures around tuolumne city. that's where the fire is starting to move, edge closer to the sleepy town here. the san francisco crew has been spending a lot of time protecting the structures and homes in this area. they're out there getting their assignments and will be leaving here around 7:00 this morning. reporting live from tuolumne city, jodi hernandez, "today in the bay." >> the devastation grows out there. for more on the weather conditions firefighters are facing, let's check in with meteorologist christina loren. rough one. >> it really is. let me step out of the way and talk about what they are facing. for the next 24 hours, the winds have shifted from the
south-southeast, gusting more 10 to 20 miles per hour. the fire is up in the higher elevations. so firefighters right now are trying to protect anybody's property who could be damaged. however, the remote areas of this fire will likely continue to burn as we head throughout the next month, possibly next two months. we're trying to protect any property and human life they can at this point. they have new changes when it comes to the wind trucks. tomorrow we'll see thunderstorms in the area. let me give you perspective of the rim fire from space and the massive smoke plume that comes along with it. you see the area shaded in head here. this is the fire itself roughly the size of chicago. the south-southeast wind is taking all the smoke over lake tahoe. they say the tahoe basin is filled with thick smoke. it's drifted into reno where they had to cancel numerous outdoor activities. weather is certainly playing a role the next couple days.
the thunderstorms could be a blessing or a curse. depends on how much rain they provide and what the winds do. we'll get a look at your local forecast in just a few minutes. back to you jon and laura. >> make sure to stay with us for continuing coverage of the rim fire both on air and online. our website, nbcbayarea.com, is updated around the clock. you'll find a link if you go now to an interactive map that shows the perimeter of this fire. just search "rim fire". new this morning, an overnight standoff now over. streets are now open in downtown san jose. a man holding a knife to his own neck talked to police for hours overnight forcing the closure of ten city streets in the area of santa clara street between 11th and 13th. that standoff was going on just about a mile from the scene of a deadly shooting that happened on saturday in downtown san jose. a man on a bike was shot and killed in a parking lot at third and julian streets and a surveillance camera captured it

conditions here. strong winds expected to push this fire over the next couple of days, gusting as they have at times over 40 miles an hour. the rugged terrain in these mountains making it's cally difficult for the teams that are on the ground. they continue to work around the clock, but this fire is growing as you talk about containment below 10% at this point. not the focus. right now the focus continues to be protection, trying to protect small towns like this one and others that could be in the path of the flames. that's what these crews are doing, the best job they can of right now. they've already lost 11 homes, 23 structures. that's a number they want to see theúsame, laura and jon, even if the other numbers climb, they want to make sure they don't lose anymore homes here. so far they've been able to accomplish that part of this very difficult mission. thank you very much. they do have a fight against them. 7% contained. that's it. >> a lot of firefighters from the bay area trying to help out.
christina loren, let's talk about the conditions. it's not goating any easier for these guys. >> no. over the next couple days, a big question mark when it comes to the thunderstorms. not yet today. as we head through tomorrow and wednesday, we'll see the monsoonal moisture and thunderstorms pop up in the area. that could be a blessing or a curse. with the thunderstorms, you can get brief heavy downpours that could help the firefighting efforts. you also get really gusty winds to the tune of about 50, 60 miles per hour. that's why we're really concerned about the firefighting efforts. the winds over the weekend have shifted. they were coming out of the southwest, that was a moist ocean air, now seeing the winds out of the south-southeast. for us that means very dry air in the area. you can see from the smoke plume courtesy of nasa, how large it is. you see the area shaded in red. that's the size, the perimeter itself of the rim fire, roughly the size of chicago. that smoke is drifting 250, 300 miles plus away.
there's air quality alerts issued for tahoe and reno. they had to cancel several events in the area. this is something we'll be talking about at least for the next week. the word is once they get those structures contained, the area contained around the structures and those structures protected, the fire itself could continue to burn in the remote areas for up to a month, maybe even two months. that's massive fire and a massive undertaking. 59 degrees here in nevada. we're starting out nice and comfortable. we're the one area in the whole state of california where things are nice and calm for now. that looks to be the case as we head through the next couple days. we'll see cool ocean air move onshore, although i need to point out, if you're going to go camping, having a barbecue, make sure everything is completely out before you leave that fire. 64 degrees in sunnyvale, 64 in san jose. here is where we're headed later today. 86 inland, bay side 77 degrees. 65 degrees at the coast. we'll talk a little more about
warmer weather headed our way. then we have a cooler weekend as we finish off the month of august and kickoff september. but it's that time, kids heading back to school, certainly noticeable on the roads. let's check on that with mike. >> summer vacations ending. a lot of us heading back to work. a lot of folks heading to the bay bridge toll plaza itself. the metering lights on just before 6:00. low clouds hover, not a problem for visibility. we'll get a look at the span. the low clouds also, you can see through them and the silhouettes of the buildings in san francisco. be prepared, visibility may shift over the next couple hours as you're traveling over the bridges, watching a smooth drive across the area. we'll look6já over here toward san mateo bridge, we're talking about the low clouds hovering, speeds close to what they typically are about this time, 6:34. we're looking at a good volume of traffic westbound off the high-rise and toward foster city, you can't make out that

in all this. oakland police and the nay your have been under intense pressure trying to deal with a series of shootings including those involving children. since january eight people under the age of 18 years old have been killed in oakland. oakland police and crime stoppers are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading the the arrest of the shooter. reporting live in oakland, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> those children are expected to recover from their gunshot injuries, but sadly five children ages 8 years old and younger have been shot and killed in oakland since 2011. earlier this month 16-month-old drew jackson was shot and killed when someone fired shots into the bedroom where he was sleeping. in july, 8-year-old alaysha carradine was shot and killed by a gunman when she answered the door during a sleepover. in 2011 three children shot and

firefighters -- 3,400 firefighters are out here battling the blaze, including many crews from the san francisco bay area. of course, that's putting the folks who live in this region at ease. one man told me that practically -- it looks like there's a firefighter for every house out here. they certainly have a lot of work ahead of them. again, this blaze is just 7% contained, 144,000 acres have burned so far. these folks have a long way to go. live tuolumne city, jodi hernandez, "today in the bay." >> jodi, thank you very much. for continuing coverage of the rim fire, you can visit us online at nbcbayarea.com. we update it around the clock. right now you can find the link to an interactive map showing the perimeter of this fire. just search rim fire. 6:56. big changes in the world of stocks. bad news for the nasdaq. >> the nasdaq about to be eclip eclipsed.
